    Srboone, I have a copy of Zodiac, and it is exactly how you describe. I have gotten it out of the slipcase once. Haven't tried again since then. That is why I didn't go for this grab bag, thinking it may be included.

    Subteranean Press grab bag! A great signed copy of Angel's Game. A couple of nice Bradbury's, A Pleasure to Burn. A slip cased copy of Zodiac, Neal Stepenson, Up the bright River, Philip Jose Farmer, The Affair of the Chalk Cliffs, Blaylock. Most are signed, one is a scratch and dent, no big deal. Nothing that filled a crying need, but Overall a nice selction. Have a great week!

    No problems, I'm checking it again, even as we speak. And no issues. Sorry you got a bad one.

    I agree! Almost as good as Club Dumas!!

    I have F. Paul Wilson's The Dark at the End, but I haven't been able to read it yet. I'm kind of dreading reading it because it's the last in the series. Well, until the prequels start cranking out.

    $50 saving must be worth a least a brief burlesque bump around the front yard Squire !!!! (well done on the discount, more towards your next acquisition)

    No. There was 1/2 in. closed tear on cover, but in Fine/Very good + condition. And the fact that it was flat signed rather than inscribed was a big bonus. Most of the signings King did in his early years were insciptions.

    The new consignment he posted on monday has alot of reasonably priced inscriptions. Everyone prefers a flatsign of course but for those prices i'd go for it...If I was currently spending money but I AM NOT!

    Actually I may spend up to but no more than $100 on a bookcase on Saturday. Until this year Sydney had the only all girls school east of Montreal but the building and Convent were owned by the church. The church of course decided to sell because of financial issues and the school board would not buy the old ass building. So everything is being sold including some VERY old beautiful bookcases some with glass doors. I am hoping they are desperate and selling cheap because they could actually make a fortune on this antique furniture if they wanted to. But if I can get one for under $100 I most certainly will, although I would just LOVE to buy ALL of them regardless of price. Some things are just not possible though but I intend to make an attempt at one of them.

    Good luck on that, Teri. I'm shoppoing around for a bookcase with glass doors on it myself.

    Look at them, I'd be lucky to score one at $100 let alone two and I'd also have no where to put the second one, unless my dad caves and lets me use his spare room. to even get one I have to get rid of my current bookcase which is like a $30 walmart deal I got free second hand so good riddence
